Chanel recreates art gallery on Paris Fashion Week runway
Oct '13
Staying true to its tradition of staging larger than life catwalk sets, the French fashion house Chanel once again presented a unique runway setting, with an art gallery-like stage, on the penultimate day of Paris Fashion Week.
Created under the aesthetic guidance of its creative director Karl Lagerfeld, the label’s latest ready-to-wear range showcased an abundant usage of tweed, chains, pearls and quilting. The line included pink suits, textured grey leather dresses, knee-length skirts with tiny bows and draped flowing numbers decorated with layers of silk ribbons. 
‘Roman opera’ and ‘African tribal ethnicity’ both blended into a heady concoction of sophisticated looks with ethnic touches at the Milan-based brand Valentino’s show. Designed by the label’s joint creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, the collection displayed floor sweeping robes, short centurion-style dresses, embroidered skirts and simple pale-coloured shirts. 
British label Alexander McQueen, under the creative direction of Sarah Burton, presented an extraordinary Spring/Summer 2014 line, inspired heavily from the artworks of Mondrian and Picasso. The pieces included armour-like bodices, leather pleated dresses, tightly beaded long gowns with feathers and vibrantly hued coats.
The 29-year-old Dutch fashion designer Iris Van Herpen took inspiration from various genres of music to create a dark 16-piece line. Made from techno fabrics with touch-sensitive electronic chip inserts, the collection offered cropped jackets, shimmery cross-over dresses and fitted black sheaths.
